We believe the ocean is an important component in Bermuda's recovery from the global pandemic and offers an abundance of opportunities to grow a healthy economy that benefits all. The Bermuda Ocean Prosperity Programme (BOPP) is working to create a comprehensive plan to sustainably use, manage, and protect that ocean, a plan which will help the economy and ensure healthy fisheries and marine ecosystems for future generations. But we can’t do it without your help.
